You can apply if you live in Scotland whether you are in work or not. You may be eligible if you are the parent or carer of the child and get certain benefits or tax credits.

They would love to hear from you if you have plans that could help more people get outside to learn something! Whether it’s for groups, families, individuals or schools, if you think a grant of up to £2,000 would help you achieve it, consider making an application.
The deadline for applications is 30th June 2022

| Communities across the UK are facing fresh challenges and opportunities, and have new hopes and aspirations. Can you help the National Lottery (TNL) better understand what these are and how they might offer support?
TNL want to ensure they remain relevant, responsive, and supportive to the communities they serve. By sharing your thoughts and ideas you can help ensure they, and the support they provide, remain fit and future-focused.
| The Museums Galleries Scotland Small Grants Fund provides support for small scale project activity but it is also there to support any Accredited museums struggling to meet critical, non-project costs due to the depletion of reserves or budgets as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
It cannot support core-operating costs, but it can support essential repairs, maintenance, and resources. It can also support activity that is about recovering visitor numbers, management of collections, building resilience or reducing costs.
To learn more visit the website.
| The Positive Action Grant scheme supported 28 local sports and cultural groups last year. These groups were able to deliver a range of great local opportunities which supported health and wellbeing.
LLA is the sports and culture service of Aberdeenshire Council, and the grants are open to eligible organisations based in and providing services in the area.
Groups can apply for between £200 and £5,000. This scheme offers a route to deliver innovative sporting and cultural projects and it is hoped it will encourage new community organisations to build their capacity.
Have a great idea? Apply by the 31st May 2022.
